If you are reading this probably your pond has turned green or your fish look languish, may be a disease has wiped your beautiful Koi collection. If your 1,500 Gallon or less pond looks like this. It’s definitely overcrowded! Now we know what we’re dealing with… Oh wait but “I’ve had the same amount of koi for years” I’ve heard this time after time, and here’s the short answer to that. 30 koi that are no bigger than 4-6in would do just fine. The problem being when they grow and their food requirements increase too, slowly but surely maxing out the system (that doesn’t grow with them) to unbearable living conditions.
